THE GREAT EXCHANGE
In Part XXXIV of The Great Exchange, we
introduced the conflict between Amillennialism (which preaches a
“Spiritualized” version of the 1,000 year reign of the LORD on the
earth as the “church age”), and the Futurist view (now
dominated by Future prophetic scenarios, including the “Jewish Fables”
of the Rapture Cult).
“For the time will come when they
will not endure sound doctrine…And they shall turn away their ears from
the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” (II Timothy
We also noted how a subset of Amillennalism is the
faulty idea of Preterism, where all prophecy was supposedly
fulfilled in the first century, with no trace of events in the last 2,000 years
foreseen in the prophecies of the Bible.
Preterists say the tribulation already occurred in 70 AD,
at the siege in Jerusalem by the Romans.
Classic Rapture Cult doctrine, insisting on the complete
separation of the “Church” and “Israel,” even tells us
the revelation of the body of Christ is never seen in the Old Testament.
When we review the development of Christian doctrine since
the time of the cross, a striking picture emerges. The short version is,
we’ve learned that by examining the flow of changing doctrine
within the Christian church over the course of centuries, our inspection
regularly reveals Satan’s fingerprints at the scene of the crime.
The Holy Spirit warned the believers from the earliest time
that such a circumstance would develop, and that particular admonition is found
in the New Testament.
“Beloved, when I gave all diligence
to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto
you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for
the faith which was once delivered unto the saints” (Jude
Jude goes on to address how “ungodly men” had
already introduced heretical ideas into the body of Christ, and the teachings
which were destined to flower into sophisticated false doctrines throughout the
The heresies being addressed were brought in by men who were
destined to be vessels of dishonour:
“[Such men] were before of
old ordained to this condemnation” (Jude 1:4).
With the foreordination of these “filthy
dreamers” (Jude 1:8) who “defile the flesh” through
the doctrine embedded in their “great swelling words” (Jude
1:16), there is every indication the apostasies mentioned will continue until
the “judgment of the great day” (Jude 1:6).
Thus, the Christian era is indirectly addressed through the
reference to the heresies mentioned in the text – and that is precisely
what we have seen ever since the Christian age was inaugurated.
We note that Jude also mentions the Spiritual
“chains” we mentioned in last weeks’ installment of The
Great Exchange, which are said to bind the Devil for 1,000 years,
during the Millennial Reign of Christ, spoken of in Revelation.
“The angels which kept not their
first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in
everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great
day” (Jude 1:6).
This verse actually provides an important clue concerning sequence,
as it subtly points out just one of the inconsistencies in the Amillennial
view. Remember, the non-Millennialists claim the “thousand years” (Revelation
20:4) of Christ’s reign on the earth is symbolic of the entire
When Jude speaks of the fallen angels who “left their
own habitation” (Jude 1:6), he was obviously referring to the Nephilim
episode in Genesis, when “the sons of God came in unto the daughters of
men” (Genesis 6:4), and bred hybrids who became the “mighty
men” of the pre-flood epoch.
These evil angels were said to have taken any of the women
“which they chose” for themselves, motivating them to abandon their
heavenly “estate” (Genesis 6:2, Jude 1:6). Their infamous
account is a Prophetic Parallel of the notorious tale of Sodom
and Gomorrah, as the homosexual desire of “going after strange
flesh” (Jude 1:7) was another Temporal Recapitulation
of the unnatural union of fallen angels and the daughters of men.
To rephrase that thought, the aberrant nature of two classes
of the creation – angels and human women – blended to produce an
unholy physical third, was Prophetically Paralleled in the
unscriptural joining of the same sex of human kind in order to generate an
unholy spiritual third – a perverted form of self centered carnal
pleasure – as opposed to the heaven ordained, mutually enjoyable
reproduction of the species.
“For this cause God gave them up
unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that
which is against nature: and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of
the woman, burned in their lust one toward another” (Romans 1:26, 27).
However, there is another point that may be made from the
Scripturally stated Prophetic Parallel of these iniquitous
When Jude noted the “chains” which were used to
bind the fallen angels who crossed over to the earthly realm, the
episode occurred well before the giving of the law of the Old Testament; yet
the “chains” which the Amillennialists tell us bind Satan
during the Millennial Reign of Christ are the result of the victory of Christ
at the cross – in the Christian era.
Remember, the Amils claim the verses referencing the reign
of Jesus for 1,000 years is symbolic of the entire “church” age.
Thus, since the “chains” mentioned in Jude reference a completely
different timeline than the “chains” which bind the Devil during
the Millennium, the theological divisions of differing timelines serves to
confuse the issue.
Something is wrong here, and it’s not the Scriptures,
as they are the Word of God which “cannot be broken” (John
What is amiss is our perception of the descriptions found in
the Bible that reference time, as well as Spiritual locale, in
addition to other aspects of the characteristics conveyed in the text.
A good example of this myopia in our point of view is found
when Jesus confronts the cluster of devils in the well known episode of the
Gadarene madman. In that revealing account, Jesus arrived at the land
of the Gadarenes, which was reached through travel over the sea.
“And when he went forth to land,
there met him out of the city a certain man, which had devils long time, and
ware no clothes, neither abode in any house, but in the tombs” (Luke
When we read stories like this, we tend to overlook what
some might call the big picture, as our minds move right into the
details of the story – and in this process, we fail to appreciate the
setting seen in the Scripture which shows us the additional meaning, in which
the Word of God informs us that Jesus traversed over the sea, to
the land in order for this sequence of events to commence.
“Now it came to pass on a certain
day, that he went into a ship with his disciples: and he said unto them, Let
us go over unto the other side of the lake” (Luke 8:22).
This type of statement is foundational to our understanding,
as we’ve repeatedly sought to show how Prophetic Metaphor
has many elements of doctrine imbedded within the various accounts. Once again,
we refer to this phenomena as Apocalyptic Linguistics (see the
book of the same name).
As we continue the recitation of the tale of the Gadarene
madman, we learn about the circumstances of the man that was mercilessly
oppressed by a multitude of devils.
“For oftentimes [the unclean
spirits] had caught him: and he was bound with chains….and
he brake the bands, and was driven of the devil into the
wilderness” (Luke 8:29).
The allegorical picture that begins to emerge is one of a
shifting battlefield. The war against the Angelic Rebel Coalition (which
we call the ARC) that raged in the heavenly sphere, featured divinely
empowered Spiritual “chains” which bound Satan “a thousand
years,” and they were not broken.
The text is indicating that when the “dragon and his
angels” fought and “prevailed not” in the “war in
heaven” (Revelation 12:7,8), the evil spirits were “cast out
into the earth, and [the dragon’s] angels were cast
out with him” (Revelation 12:9).
With the account of the Gadarene madman, who involuntarily
hosted thousands of Devils (his name was legion in the text), the
metaphor communicated is telling us that, on his own, mankind is helpless to
stop the unclean spirits.
“[The devils were] coming
out of the tombs [the place of Death], exceedingly
fierce…and he was kept bound with chains and with [foot
shackles] and he brake the bands” (Matthew 8:28, Luke 8:29)
The imagery is clearly related to Spiritual captivity,
which is one of the primary characteristics of the Spiritual power of the False
Prophet – as opposed to Antichrist. Since the Gadarenes (also
seen as Gergesenes in Matthew 8) were Gentiles, this not only documents a
literal sequence of events as Jesus confronts, and then casts out the devils,
it also serves as a text with enormous allegorical applications, as it
anticipates the fact that Christ was already functioning in the role of the Mediator
– long before the calling of the Gentiles.
“And he said, It is a light thing
that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to
restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the
Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the
earth” (Isaiah 49:6).
As the text indicates the devils had taken the Gadarene captive,
we see the release from captivity that Christ spoken about so frequently.
“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon
me…he hath sent me to…proclaim liberty to the captives, and
the opening of the prison to them that are bound” (Isaiah
In order to fulfill His great mission, the Son of God crossed
over (Luke 8:22) the Spiritual “sea,” to the
“earth” to rescue mankind. Further, we see the body of Christ,
during what we now call the “church age,” was also able to cast out
“And the seventy [disciples]
returned with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through
thy name” (Luke 10:17).
Thus, Isaiah’s prophecy which referenced the
“Spirit of the LORD God,” which was given by Jesus to His assembled
body [translated church], in order to bring about “the opening of
the prison to them that are bound” (Isaiah 61:1), predicted the
supernatural abilities endowed on the believers. Further, the authority given
to the saints continues throughout the Christian age.
Moreover, both the Amillennialists and the Rapture
Cult have been blinded (John 12:40), so they are unable to recognize
the fulfillment of the exceedingly detailed prophecies in Daniel, which address
the entire span of the Christian era, including the Holy Roman Empire
and Imperial Spain that Prophetically Paralleled the Old
Testament era kingdoms of Egypt and Assyria.
These two kingdoms were followed by the Christian era
quartet of kingdoms predicted to rise in Daniel 7, as the British
Commonwealth (the “lion” kingdom of Daniel 7:4), the Soviet
Union (the “bear” kingdom of Daniel 7:5), Nazi
Germany (the “leopard” kingdom of Daniel 7:6), and America
(the “diverse” beast kingdom of Daniel 7:7).
In other words, the kingdoms described in Daniel concerning
the Christian era not only destroys the Amillennial view that our
time is the Millennial Reign of Christ on the earth, it also decimates the
“Jewish fables” (Titus 1:14) that were used by the Rapture
Cult to hijack the prophecies espousing Futurism.
But further details on how we can harmonize the internal
Kingdom of God put forth by the Amillennialists, and the external
prophetic texts of the Futurists, will have to wait for the next
installment of The Great Exchange.
To Be Continued
Christian Media has an eye-opening, on-demand video
elaborating on the crucial facts seen in the above article —
which also includes predictions concerning the enormous turn of events
associated with the present political tumult in America – especially with
reference to the American diplomatic recognition of Jerusalem as
the capital of the political state known as Israel.
We also publish a weekly news synopsis summarizing what has
occurred each week (The ChristianMediaDaily News – The Week In Review).
In addition to this, we produce a regularly issued companion letter
commenting on the material seen in each chapter of THE
CHRISTIAN MEDIA COMMUNIQUE. The latest edition of that letter
(entitled the Christian Median MINISTRY STATUS REPORT or MSR)

the radio stream where the Christian Media Network can be heard on the

Health and Survival, as well as other regularly issued videos
which elaborate on doctrine, and identify specific False Prophets the
believer should avoid.
However, the adversary has already sown tares in this
vineyard (II Thessalonians 2:7), and we choose not to provide the
website links with the video elaborating on the present prophecy
writing here, as those who think they’re doing God service are tirelessly
trying to excise the truth from the Internet (John 16:2).
Viewing of the online video on this subject is completely
free (as is the receipt of this weekly Communique), and we greatly
desire as many as possible will see it (a new video will replace it in another

to send you the link. Because we refuse to “cast [our] pearls
before swine” (Matthew 7:6), our materials are only sent for a

Further, because there are many vested interests which are
threatened by the content the Christian Media ministry provides, regular
efforts are made to penetrate our ranks – including even hacker attacks.
Incredibly, we’ve already proven that
“Christian” parties, members of the “Church” that are
moving in the Spirit of Hell, have actually hired hackers to
attack our websites (Galatians 4:29).
Such are moving in the Spirit of the Pharisees and Sadducees
who came before them.

As we move through the Spiritual wilderness beyond the veil
of this world, even our Internet domains are periodically shut down by the dark
powers, so we urge all those who hear the voice of the LORD in these Communiques
to seek the LORD while He may yet be found. As those who have inherited
the light of God through Christ’s marvelous work,
“[We] must work the works of him that sent [us],
while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work” (John 9:4).
